BUFFALO, N. Cassius Marsh Jersey
.Y. - The gloves are off in Buffalo now that coach Ted Nolans patience has run out waiting for his lethargic Sabres to start showing signs of a spark.Nolan expressed his frustrations, including using a profanity in yelling at his team to wake ... up, while putting his players through a grueling 90-minute practice Wednesday.Now is the time where taking it easy is over now, Nolan said, noting that he had purposefully given the Sabres a 10-game grace period. Weve got to go work. Ill take full responsibility for that. Maybe I didnt push them hard enough. But todays the day we have to start.The Sabres (2-8) could use the extra work a day after sleepwalking through a 4-0 loss at Toronto. Buffalo managed a franchise-worst 10 shots and was shut out for the fourth time in six games.The lack of effort is what ate at Nolan, particularly after Buffalo was rested and coming off its best game, a 2-1 win at San Jose on Saturday afternoon.Its very disturbing, Nolan said of his teams performance. Its mind-baffling.The expectations were already low in Buffalo entering this year. The rebuilding Sabres were coming off a season in which they finished last in the standings, lost a franchise-record 51 times and set a post-NHL-expansion era low by scoring 150 goals.There are signs they could be even worse this year.Not including shootouts, Buffalo has scored just 10 goals. According to STATS, thats tied for the fourth fewest through the first 10 games of a season in NHL history, and fewest since the Chicago Blackhawks scored that many in 1936-37.Nolan isnt surprised by how low the Sabres offence has sunk.If we play the way we played last night, Im quite sure well break some more of those records, he said. If youre not going to shoot, youre not going to score. Its pure and simple as that. ... You can draw up all the fancy game plays that you want, but the want has to be there.Tyler Ennis leads Buffalo with three goals, while Zemgus Girgensons and Marcus Foligno have two each.Matt Moulson, Drew Stafford and Cody Hodgson, who combined for 58 goals last season, have a goal and seven assists between them.Moulson, a three-time 30-goal-scorer, had a difficult time coming up with a solution for Buffalos offensive woes.If it was an easy fix, it would be fixed by now, he said.Nolan is taking matters into his own hands by juggling the Sabres lines for Buffalos home game against Boston on Thursday.The biggest switch involves Hodgson being demoted to the fourth line. And Nolan acknowledged hes toying with the thought of having Hodgson sit out a game by saying: Hes pretty close to there, too.NOTES: The Sabres are slightly ahead of last years record, when they got off to a 1-8-1 start. ... Rookie first-round draft pick C Sam Reinhart is set to play against Boston. That will mark his ninth game, meaning the Sabres have to determine whether to return Reinhart to his Canadian Junior team in Kootenay, British Columbia, or have his rookie contract automatically kick in with his 10th NHL game. ... Nolan said G Jhonas Enroth will start against Boston. Jimmie Ward Jersey

. And rest hardly led to rust for the two-time defending NBA champions.Formula 1 faces yet another vote on Thursday, with the sports bosses reconvening to discuss whether aggregate qualifying should replace the little-loved current elimination format. The system was heavily criticised again after its second outing in Bahrain and team bosses met with the sports supremo Bernie Ecclestone and FIA president Jean Todt to address the situation.However, no agreement on what to do for the next race in China was reached and a new idea was instead put forward... How would aggregate qualifying work?A drivers two best times in each of the three knockout sessions are combined to find the aggregate and set the order.How will Thursdays vote go?In a bid to keep cars on track for longer - an obvious flaw in the current format - Q1 would be lengthened to 18 minutes, with the slowest seven drivers eliminated at the end of the session. Aggregate laps for qualy? Vote on the format youd like to see used in qualifying Q2 will follow a similar method; the seven drivers with the lowest aggregate times knocked out after 15 minutes.The top eight would then be decided by their fastest two laps in the 12-minute Q3 session.What difference would it have made in Bahrain?Striving for one-lap perfection at the weekend, Lewis Hamilton ran wide at the final corner on his first run in Q3. Though he went on to set the fastest ever time at the Bahrain International Circuit, with an aggregate format the Mercedes driver would have started third on the grid behind Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel. To stress the obvious: the fastest lap would no longer necessarily result in pole position.However, with a minimum two laps required from each driver per session, the criticism that there are not enough cars on track would at least have been a thing of the past. What would teams do to combat the system?With the aggregate system, drivers would be punished for any errors - such as Hamilton in the case above - and could therefore opt for more bankers. Its feasible teams would advise their drivers not to go for broke on a lap in case they made a mistake and slipped down the order.Strategy would be key. Teams could put fuel in for one more lap and run two consecutive fliers only to be usurped by a rival who has used new sets of supersofts on two separate stints, at the beginning and end of the session. Simon Lazenby is joined by Ted Kravitz and Martin Brundle to discuss whether an aggregate qualifying system would work Would it shake up the grid?One change F1 is certainly striving for is extra unpredictability - even though fans will stress that last years qualy format provided just that.Elimination qualifying was seen as the best way of providing grid upsets. However, the only notable unpredictability the format has thrown up so far is Daniil Kvyat and Sergio Perez not making it out of Q1.But the new proposed format may result in even fewer surprises.Take Pascal Wehrlein, one of the standout performers in Bahrain, who squeezed the life out of the Manor with a superb lap to jump into 16th. Force India werent expecting the F1 rookie to trouble Perez and didnt have enough time to counter. When is the Chinese GP on Sky? Sky Sports is the only place to see all the action from Shanghai But using the aggregate system, the Mexican would have finished comfortably ahead of Wehrlein with two laps in the 1:32s.Stoffel Vandoorne - another youngster who made a name for himself in the desert - also wouldnt have made it out of Q1 if this format was adopted in Bahrain, assuming Nico Rosberg, Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas set a second flying lap.The final four shootout between Ferrari and Mercedes may run to a familiar beat with the leaders chasing quick-but-not-risky laps to set an impressive aggregate time.But other drivers, particularly those in less-fancied cars, would now need to produce two special laps rather than one to either proceed to the next qualy stage or produce a stand-out result. What about the fans?Aggregate qualifying may be slightly ahead of the elimination format in our vote, but its clear to see F1 fans would prefer a return to 2015s system. It was easy to follow, simple to understand and rewarded the fastest lap with pole.While fans would no longer need to be almost permanently looking down at a clock to check who was going to be counted out next, the aggregate system also appears to have its flaws when it comes to complexity.Moments like Hamiltons record-breaking lap in Bahrain to snatch pole could be eliminated, with fans instead needing to grab a calculator to check if his next fastest lap has given him a leading combined time.

. Todt, however, is confident the aggregate format will be right for all parties.You need to be patient, by Thursday you will have all the information, he said. I hope that fans will be happy. Will it make a difference for tyres?Sky Sports understands that Pirelli will provide extra sets of tyres for the Chinese GP should aggregate qualifying be approved, though teams could still have to set qualifying laps on used tyres to save rubber for the race. Is it time to change the qualifying format after just two races of the new season? Some of F1s leading drivers have their say What do the drivers think of aggregate qualy?Its fair to say the drivers sound less than enthused by the prospect.Its time to go to the circus, said Sebastian Vettel. Its a good idea if you want random things to happen, but Formula 1 should be about racing. Its a s*** idea.Daniel Ricciardo, meanwhile, stressed: Qualifying is about that one perfect lap. To have an aggregate, it starts to sound more like some form of endurance racing.Jenson Button, however, felt anything would be an improvement on the current format: Drivers driving round with one eye open is better than this one. And to the teams support aggregate qualy?Red Bulls Christian Horner, who rejected the proposition of a hybrid of the elimination system and 2015s, said: No one likes the current system, so this idea is a step in the right direction. It at least has elements of the 2015 system, which is what the teams prefer.Ferraris Maurizio Arrivabene claimed it doesnt sound that bad while Claire Williams said: It is quite a well thought through proposal that the FIA have come up with and hopefully it will be a solution that will work for everybody, and that will be be easy for our fans to understand.However, asked if aggregate times are a kick in the stomach for F1 purists, Mercedes Toto Wolff said: I think the kick is even lower than that. What happened with F1s last aggregate experiment?It was 11 years ago that F1 last aggregated two qualifying times to set the grid.After Michael Schumacher and Ferraris domination of the 2002 season, when the German won his third consecutive world title by July with a record six races to spare, F1s rulemakers introduced new measures to increase unpredictability in the sport - with changes to qualifying at the heart of them. Ted Kravitz interviews F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone on F1 Qualifying and other topics Between 2003 and 2005 various versions of single-lap qualifying were devised, with the latter year seeing an aggregate system adopted. Across two sessions - one on a Saturday afternoon followed by a second on Sunday morning - drivers would complete single flying laps, with their two times combined to determine their position on the grid.However, the new idea proved unpopular with fans and, with TV companies not carrying the Sunday session live, aggregate qualifying was binned after five races to be replaced by one single-lap session on Saturday. The three-part Q1, Q2 and Q3 knockout system was then introduced to more successful effect in 2006.Dont miss the F1 Report: Bahrain GP on Wednesday night at 8.30pm when The Times Kevin Eason and Ben Hunt of The Sun will join Natalie Pinkham to review events in the desert Every race live in 2016 Sky Sports F1 brings you every race live in 2016.
